The following companies compose the Regiment--Lamar Rifles, Capt. Green; University Grays, Capt. Lowrey; Van Dorn Reserves, Capt. Reynolds; Prairie Guards, Capt. Hairston; Prairie Rifles Capt. Williams; Coahoma Invincibles, Capt. Delany; Chickasaw Guards, Captain Tucker; Carroll Rifles, Capt. Williamson; Noxubee Rifles, Capt. Weir; Nishobee Riflemen, Capt. Franklin, and the Spartan Band, Capt. Mallard. They are all magnificent looking soldiers, and are well armed and equipped, several of the companies being armed with Colt's six-shooter Rifle and the Maynard Rifle. When passing through the streets they marched to the tune "Carry me Down to Lynchburg Town," and seemed to be highly elated that they had arrived on old Virginia's soil;--Lynchburg Repub., 11th.
"Suspicious Characters." --Joseph Pills, caged Friday by order of the Mayor as a suspicious character, was brought before his Honor Saturday, and failing to give security was sent to jail. John R.

Christian mentioned as having been ordered into custody by Alderman Regnault as a suspicious character, is not Wm. Christian, of Union Hill, Richmond. The party under arrest is a Massachusetts man.
